Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Recap, Episodes 21-22: ‘S.O.S.’

shieldrecap221-222

Welcome back to the ComicsAlliance post-show analysis for Agents of SHIELD, the spy show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is where we break down each episode using our unique S.H.L.E.I.D. recap system — recapping the show, looking at highlights and lowlights, and exploring the show’s relationship to both the comics and the wider Marvel movie world.

This week, Jiaying starts a war, everyone fights everyone else, but only the very unlucky fight Mockingbird. The casualties mount up, a family breaks up, and it looks like Phil Coulson might need a hand. 'S.O.S.' Part One was directed by Vincent Misiano and written by Jeffrey Bell; 'S.O.S.' Part Two was directed by Billy Gierhart and written by Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen.

A-Force writer G. Willow Wilson posted a thoughtful response on Tumblr, which we've reprinted here with her permission.

CA_BestComics_0513

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

promo

Thanks to Avengers: Age of Ultron, the movie-going world has now been introduced to one of the stranger Marvel heroes, the synthetic android Vision, played onscreen by Paul Bettany. A sightly spooky kinda-robot with feel feelings (sometimes) and a crush on a witch, and a mechanical dad and magic babies (but not really), he's a confusing character to get to grips with, which makes him the idea subject for the recurring feature we call Comics, Everybody! Cartoonist Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again and colorist Jordan Gibson are here to educate you about Vision's complicated history of upgrades, downgrades, and reboots.
